About “The best wine in China”
This movie deals the extraordinary adventure of a young French wine-grower from Vigneron who left for China to make wines. Employed by a novice businessman and placed under a touchy Chinese boss, Benjamin arrives in the far western region of China with full of enthusiasm. His mission then is to produce the best wine of China. A series of different obstacles, like a few hundred hectares of dry area to be transformed into vineyard crops and a lack of financial resources makes his objectives almost impossible to reach. This film adresses not only the difficulty of international cooperation with political and economic concerns but also deals with cultural diversity.
